Adding an additional title

Can I add an additional title?

If you are already registered as a Dental Care Professional (DCP) and have since qualified in another area, you can request the relevant DCP title to be added to the register.

How do I apply to add an additional title?

Please complete all sections of the application form below and return it to us. Please note that you are not able to apply for additional titles using the online application system. We will only be able to accept the below application form.

DCP Application form

Once you have completed your form and gathered all of the necessary documentation please send your application to the following address:

General Dental Council

What do I need to send?

As well as your completed application form, we will also need:

  • a certified copy of a valid identity document such as passport or driving license. The copy should clearly show your photograph; personal details and the expiry date of the document
  • a certified recent passport sized photo
  • a certified copy of your qualification, and
  • a certified copy of your name change document if your name has changed since you obtained your qualification.

Please note that if you are sending a certified copy of your driving license, it must be a colour copy of both the back and front.

Is there a fee to add a title?

There is a £12 fee to add a title to your registration. However, there is no additional annual retention fee for any extra DCP titles you have.

How long will it take?

We will endeavour to assess your application within 10 working days from the date we receive it, however this time-frame can increase during peak processing times. Please note that delays can also occur if the form is not completed correctly and/or if there are any concerns raised within your application which will require us to assess it further before we can register you.

Kindly ensure that you have included all requested documents to avoid longer processing times.​
